Acknowledgements - People
I would like to acknowledge the help of a number of people who participated in the development of SLControl.
- Ravi Kochar
has patiently answered many questions about
Windows programming and has offered unfailingly good advice since the inception of this project.
This project would not have been possible without him.
His generosity continues - he maintains the main

- Dan Fitzsimons (Dept. of Physiology, UW-Madison) performed most of the development testing on the
Tension_control modes. Not only did he endure initial problems with early releases without complaint,
he has provided useful advice on making SLControl a more user-friendly system. Most of his suggestions are
being incorporated in the new releases.
- Scott Buck (
University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill
) was the first person
to use SLControl for recording force from single cardiac myocytes. He was also the first user of SLControl
outwith the Department of Physiology at UW-Madison, and as such, his perspectives on the on-line documentation
and self-installating executables have been particularly valuable.
- Members of the
who have tolerated my late nights banging away at the keyboard and the piles of manuals/programming books
left throughout the lab.
- The support staff at
They have the only technical support group I have ever heard of, who ring you up to check that you're
- Jan Goyvaerts at
Just Great Software.
Jan is in no way connected to SLControl, but I used his freeware release of the extremely versatile
extensively during the development and testing of SLControl and indeed to create this entire website.
- Finally the growing numbers of SLControl users, most of whom seem to be quite happy but who continually
offer advice and well-meant criticism with the aim of improving SLControl for everybody in the future.
